Thanks much for creating the board. I thought the timeline summary was excellent (and damning)
At least they are not taking orders on their website last I checked: "We are focusing on delivering our current orders before taking new ones. Please sign up for the mailing list on our homepage to be notified when we resume taking orders." - how long has this been the message - seems like worth adding to the timeline.
I wonder if credit card companies will follow paypal's lead or if they have better seller protection. Hopefully I get a watch rather than a refund. Everyone post your preorder number and whether you received a refund or a watch. Also that guy that ordered the wrong size, why the hell didn't you make a youtube video? I still question whether they actually sent out any watches.
CST has sent me 19 emails, (unfortunately I am unable to find my receipt from after I paid, hopefully somebody can give me a better search term). Most of the emails are copy paste updates from kickstarter. I preordered on July 2 2013 order confirmation 34XX, paid $144 USD on March 12 2014 after I got this:
Thank you for your interest in the CST-01, the world’s thinnest watch. We are sending this message to remind you to complete your order by submitting your credit card information.
We have closed early-bird pricing for pre-orders on the website and have transitioned to processing payments. As one of our early supporters, you will be able to keep your pre-order pricing if you log in and complete your order (a $55 savings right now and $100 saving over retail stores). It has been a month since the first e-mail went out requesting that you complete your order. We have extended the deadline by one week (ends March 19) and are sending this reminder e-mail to those of you who have not yet completed your orders.
In case you missed the last e-mail, we are in the process of manufacturing the first batch of watches for our Kickstarter backers. In order to prevent a gap in fulfillment for our early pre-order supporters, we need to process your payment in order to purchase additional components. Our current schedule shows that we will start shipping around the end of April.
A customized shopping cart has been created for you below, just log on to fill out your payment details, and your card will be billed. At the time of shipping, we will send a confirmation e-mail to make sure your address is correct. There are 2 ways of completing your order. The first is to click the link below:

im one of those who pre ordered the watch. im not a backer of the project. therefore i can only check the updates in kickstarter but cannot give a comment to voice out my opinions and ask for updates. i sent a number of emails already to jerry but no response. to be honest i lost hope already on this watch. it felt like a scam.
im from the philippines so i dont know if there is hope for me to get this watch. such a waste of money.
Not sure what happened but I was trying to thank the poster with the news link video. At this point in time I would gladly donate my losses to prosecute these low life scumbags. I pre ordered 2 watches and 2 charging stations.
Even IF the product arrives (highly doubtful) I would probably donate them to a local auction to help others. I just can't see my self enjoying a product that has been so far filled with deceit.
